Sally and David provided us with the most stupendous lunch - champagne, salmon with Kiffler potatoes and stir-fry vegetables and a soy-based sauce, followed by trifle. Real English trifle, swimming in sherry, no bought custard or tinned fruit. On the way home, a visit to some of Sandra's family, with Christmas cake and home-made shortbread. A small ham sandwich was more than enough for dinner, followed by a repeat Agatha Christie on TV and an early night.
Today we swim. Tomorrow a trip to the airport, and then we have another week of holiday in our new house together.
